Do you have a project or piece of work that you would like to share with your peers?

Submitting an abstract at conference is an excellent means to communicate the outcomes of your research project with fellow practitioners, researchers and educationalists. Presenting will also support your personal development, showcase your skills and help grow your CV.

Each year over 100 posters and 12 oral paper presentations are presented at conference from submissions covering the breadth of infection prevention topics.

Last year was record-breaking as there were 152 posters presented and 12 oral paper presentations at conference.

Submissions open on the 12th February and close on the 12th June 2019.

Oral Presentations

Presentation Examples

If your abstract is accepted as an oral presentation, you will present a short 15 minute talk in front of an audience of your peers.

To help you prepare your presentation, we have pulled together examples from previous winning oral presentations. These will demonstrate how to lay out your slides and how to achieve the best effect for presenting to an audience. These slides are for guidance only and should not be replicated.

If you are new to presenting, don't worry - we are here to assist.

If your abstract is accepted as a poster, you will join many others in presenting a poster at the conference.

We look forward to increasing the number of posters displayed each year. We encourage you to submit your abstract to contribute to educating and informing others.

You will find three templates on the downloads page to assist you with completing your poster. These templates are only a guide; you do not have to use them.

Poster Talks


There will be poster talks taking place on both the Sunday and Monday of conference. These talks will take place in the designated poster talk areas within the exhibition and will feature preselected posters. Each presenter will give a short 3 - 5 minute presentation on their poster with the poster displayed behind them for reference.

Sunday 22 September 16:45-17:25
Monday 23 September 15:40-16:15

If you are new to presenting, don't worry - we are here to assist.
